What is Olvin?
Olvin is a behavioural analytics platform that uses machine learning to predict trends in consumer behaviour. It uses anonymised geospatial data from mobile devices as the cornerstone to understanding why people behave the way that they do. A vast spectrum of other big data is then added to the mix to further contextualise and enrich this analysis.
All of this data feeds into an artificial neural network that can make sense of patterns in the consumer movement, interpret what is affecting the performance of physical locations, and understand the factors affecting local markets. Olvin was built for B2C businesses that need more information on consumers in order to drive strategic decision-making. Its insights are easy to understand, simple to apply, and quick to access through a self-service web application, allowing businesses of every stripe to harness the power of artificial intelligence.
